The maximum win available per spin is 1,425x your stake. Christmas Secrets is a medium to high variance online slot game from the snowy land of reindeers with a return to player percentage of 96.72%.
Graphics and Theme
The theme unsurprisingly makes the most of all the fantastic Christmas traditions we celebrate. The background for this online slot is particularly clever, as it has been made to look like a warming fire in the hearth of someone’s cosy living room. The regular symbols are a mixture of letters and numbers designed like wreaths made from holly. Special symbols take the form of things like a gingerbread house, milk and cookies for Santa, stockings and the big red man himself, Santa. Big wins are delightfully illuminated in gold numbers from a wreath which drops down form the top of the screen. The music for Secrets of Christmas is an instrumental version of the classic holiday song Jingle Bells. The bonus selection screen is the most interesting, however, as it looks like a home filled with toys, each representing a bonus prize.
There is an exciting range of bonus features for this game. To access these, all you must do is land three or more scatters anywhere on the reels. The scatter in this game is a bag of toys. If you manage to land these scatters you will trigger the Free Spins round.
In addition to the ten free spins, you are granted the choice of an extra Christmas gift. For this sequence, players are taken to a new setting which is a living room floor full of toys. Each toy represents a special prize you can choose on top of your free spins. The quantity of scatters that you land will change the range of prizes that you can pick from. These extra gifts include those explained below.
Bell Wild -Turns all Bell symbols into Wilds for the duration of the free spins round.
Candle Wild- Turns all Candle symbols into Wilds for the duration of the free spins round.
Wild Reel two- Makes the second reel on the grid entirely wild for the duration of the free spins round.
Wild Reel four- Makes the fourth reel on the grid entirely wild for the duration of the free spins round.
Extra Free Spins- You are granted either 2, 4, or 10 free spins for the duration of the free spins round.
Multiplier- A 1x or 2x multiplier is applied for the duration of the free spins round.
There is also a Jolly Jackpot to play for.
